    Android tablet loses Wi-Fi proxy settings

    We have Archos 70b and Archos 80 G9 tablets as a trial in the school, and have configured a wi-fi connection on the tablets. They connect fine.

    The G9 tablets have recently received the Android 4 update.
    The 70b tabs are on Honeycomb.

    If I tap and hold the wireless network I created and do Modify, there is a box there to enter our proxy address and port. I do this and save it. I can now browse the net on the tablet and all sites work fine. We have to use this proxy in the school or the net doesn't work on the tablets as everything must go through the proxy.

    However, on both tablets, if I disconnect wi-fi and reconnect, it connects fine, but loses the proxy settings I set on the WLAN, as if I never set it in the first place. So the net can't be browsed.

    My personal Galaxy SII maintains the proxy fine. Why can't these tablets? Is there anything we can do?

    I don't know whether your equipment will have the capability but we are just about to start a similar trial and have configured a proxy less connection through our firewall. We are using open DNS for filtering and force the DNS of all devices for their servers. We had to do some tweaking on acls to allow this through then blocked everything else

    What version of Android do they have? I seem to remember that there was a problem with WiFi on 2.2 it could be this causing the problem.

    I have the similar kind of problem for my Nexus S when my phone got upgraded to 2.3.6 via OTA. However i was able to solve the problem by changing the below settings in my modem / Wi-Fi router. I Have Updated the Wireless channel to 4 and enable Security Mode as “WPA/WPA2-Personal(PSK)" as per the link How to Resolve WI-Fi issue with Android phone .
